The libraries are in need of funding. The recent boating accident showed a need for fire boats that also have no funding. Miami-Dade County commissioners and mayor are more worried about giving away land for a soccer stadium and improvements to Sun Life Stadium. The news stations are concerned about LeBron James leaving Miami.

What has happened to our priorities? Do we need more millionaire businessmen getting freebies from us while our streets and bridges are crumbling? In a few short years, this city will be like any other Central or South American ghetto. We can fix it before it falls into the ocean.
